A smartphone controlled helicopter has been added to the Spin Master's popular Air Hogs R/C range.

With Air Hogs Heli Repeat the pilot controls the aerial action with either the included standard remote control, or by downloading the free Air Hogs Flight Control App to their Android or iOS device.

On smartphones or tablets, pilots can fly using the on-screen joystick or by activating the accelerometer to control the direction of flight with a tilt of the device.

The ‘copter’s on-board electronic control system automatically prevents unstable movement, resulting in a smooth flight experience and of course the opportunity to replay the flight time and time again.

Air Hogs was the UK’s number one R/C property according to NPD’s EPoS August.
